president joe biden. it was yesterday, a sunday, a day we traditionally do not hold inauguration ceremonies. all the pomp and celebration were saved for today. our friend lawrence o'donnell is at the west front triangle outside the capitol. lawrence, what's the feeling there this morning? what is it like out there? >> reporter: the good news the feeling is warmer than anyone thought it was going to be. everybody was really worried around here in the last couple days just how cold it would be. it's livable in the 40s. and, rachel, they opened up the security system here at 7:00 a.m. people have been streaming in here since 7:00 a.m. they are not all through security yet. they will still be at least another hour of that. 250,000 of the president's closest friends have gotten tickets to this. not all of them get seats. some of them, some of the tickets are just standing tickets, and what you see behind me going down the mall are the people who are just here because they want to be here and they don't need a ticket. and they are in the free space, which may in many ways be the most fun place to
president joe biden. we're all part of this. they were shouting we're in this together and we're going to act together and we're going to try to open dialogue with those who would be our enemies abroad. we're not looking for another war this time and under this president we're looking for a way to avoid one. because these wars as we've all learned the hard way are a lot easier to start than to finish. let's start with this astounding presidential embrace of the ongoing american revolution from lexington and concord to seneca falls, selma, and stonewall. sam stein covers politics for "the huffington post," and stephanie schriock is president of emily's list. let's start with the message of inclusion and community in the president's address yesterday. many have noticed his preference for three iconic places with historic significance in the fight for american rights. let me run through them. first, seneca falls, new york, where in 1848 elizabeth cady stanton and others led a historic convention dedicated to women's rights which later led to a women's right to vote, of course. selma, alab
in december. the bad news is it is still at recession levels. the deal negotiates by vice president joe biden ends the tax holiday and increases capitol gains tax rates. how will this impact your small business? we have barbara who is an attorney. she is the writer of the monthly news later "big ideas for small business." and also author of "1001 tax deductions and breaks for 2013." great to see both of you guys, thank you for joining us. >> pleasure. >> there's a lot going on. i read an article that said frustrated, elated, happy, confused, those are all reactions. i want to talk first and foremost about the payroll tax holiday. there's no uncertainty about that. employees will be paying more out of their payroll, is this something you discuss with your employees? >> we haven't discussed with them yet. i think we were waiting first to see what would happen. our plan is to discuss it with them right before they receive their first paychecks that there will be a change. there is a 2% additional tax coming out, and we'll work with them if there's any type of problems. >> do you talk about this,
will keep going. >> over the past month, vice president joe biden and his task force is met with 229 groups from around the country. biden's task force provided a road map for the long drive ahead. >> while there is no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence completely, no piece of legislation that will prevent every tragedy, every act of evil. if there is even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try it. and i'm going to do my part. >> the president very compelling. he's willing to spend political capital in order to get something done. specific legislative proposals include a system of universal background checks, renewing the assault weapons ban from the clinton era, limiting high capacity magazines to ten bullets, providing more resources to states in reporting criminals and the mentally ill. out lawing armor-piercing bullets and funding, more funding, for police officers around the country. the president also signed 23 executive actions, most of them reinforcing laws already
out on gay marriage and only did because joe biden forced his hand. the same thing with gun control. newtown changes the landscape just like 9/11 changed the landscape. i wonder if the president didn't do two things that will cost him nothing, appeased his base knowing he has to compromise move moving forward and put the republicans now on guns and gay marriage and climate change in a position where they will apologioppose it, may win and will look older and more out of touch with younger voters. >> a speech outside washington all this appeal tom coming together and did it at the white house we are going to do this if you want to do this. i thought he was reaching out to american voters and saying, here's my agenda but i need you to come with me and make this happen. i thought in that respect it was an intensely political speech, you're right. there was none of the red states, blue states, purple state of 2009. there was much more of the ideal and he had even said he would give clean water to african countries, that was a change the world speech. this was far more practical, far mor
with a question that everybody in washington's asking. are the democrats going to be putting up joe biden for president in 2016? here's how the vice president answered that question when asked yesterday. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> oh, there's a whole lot of reasons why i wouldn't run. i haven't made that decision. and i don't have to make that decision for a while. >> so are you ready to run against hillary clinton in 2016? >> i haven't made that judgment, and hillary hasn't made that judgment, but i can tell you what. everything that should be done over the next two years that i should be part of would have to be done whether i run or i don't run. if this administration is successful, whoever is running as a democrat's better positioned to win. if we're not successful, whoever runs as the nominee is going to be less likely to win. >> you know, mike allen, there are a few reasons why joe biden might not run. one of them that i can think of right off the top of my head is if a meteor crashes into the naval observatory, a la armageddon style, perhaps he wouldn't run. but we
the oath of office when she swore in vice president joe biden. president obama spoke with these historical moments in mind during his speech. >> our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. >> in many ways, this speech was progressives. this is what we have been waiting for to hear for four years. the president is older now, and certainly wiser to the position about how washington works. but at least for today he will not let trivial politics derail the progressive course that this country is on. president obama looked out to the crowd on the national mall today and saw the full scope of america, young and old, rich and poor, black, white, hispanic, asian. he recognized the moment. he captured it. the mission he is charged with today is perhaps greater than his mission of four years ago. in 2009, he was of course there to lead us out of this economic tragedy that we were living in. in
on stolen firearms. apparently, conservatives believe this is tyranny. today vice president joe biden detailed one of the major initiatives of the president's gun proposals. >> how do we make our streets and schools safer? with regard to our streets i believe and the president believes that cops make a difference. we're going to push again for another $4 billion in grants for the cops program. >> $4 billion for more cops on the streets and around schools in america? this is what the gun lobby was demanding. but the gun nuts, well, they're not so happy. texas governor rick perry is trying to push himself into relevance again. he said in a statement the second amendment of the constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot be nor will it be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president. kind of threatening, is it? the national -- the republican national committee wrote, "president obama's series of gun control measures amount to an executive power grab." really? these statements did not mention a single action or proposal by the president. they call these measu
president joe biden who will meet with the connecticut governor promised mayors across the country yesterday that the administration is in it to win it for this fight. >> there's some who say the most powerful voice in this debate belongs to the gun lobbies and those who demand the stop to these common sense approaches to save lives. i think they're wrong. high capacity magazines don't have a practical sporting purpose or hunting purpose. as one hunter told me. if you've got 12 rounds, you've got 12 rounds, it means you've already missed the deer 11 times, you should pack the sucker in at that point. you don't deserve to have a gun period you're that bad. >> as the obama administration builds up for the legislative battle, a new poll shows 56% of americans favor stricter gun laws. and the same poll shows the national rifle association with a higher approval than hollywood. >> the nra's had some good days and bad days in this. and actually that depends on how you look at it. even when the nra has a bad day. and the media is calling them too aggressive. that's a good day for the nra, that usua
? in the end, they're still on the same page, which is the thing i like. when i hear joe biden and every single time i have heard him, he has made it very clear that the president and i are in sync. we may have our disagreements, but when we come out, we are in sync. and then he makes sure that he makes those arguments that the president is trying to get out. and i think we're blessed to have him. i really do. >> one of the other individuals who spoke today during the inauguration ceremony was senator lamar alexander, and he quoted alex hailey for his book "malcolm x" where hailey says find the good and praise it. and that again was a republican senator making an appeal that actually let us not just divide them as bad and us as good, but actually acknowledge that both of us have contributions to make. let's find the good and then let's praise that. >> when i heard that i said to myself maybe that opens the door for some kind of compromise, to see the good in the many things that this country has done. it kind of coincided with what the president was saying. >> absolutely. >> we have accomplishe

. vice president joe biden still very involved in the effort to get more movement on the gun control legislation. he met with 270 mayors from around the country trying to get them as part of a coalition urging them to help build public support for the president's new proposals. >> there's some who say the most powerful voice in this debate belong to the gun lobbyists and those who demand a stop to these common sense approaches to save lives. i think they're wrong. this time will not be like times that have come before. newtown has shocked the nation. we're going to take this fight to the halls of congress. we're going to take it beyond that. we're going to take it to the american people. we're going to go around the country making our case and let the voices of the american people be heard. >> the vice president often touts the fact he's the owner of two shotguns. he's making the case against high capacity magazines. >> high capacity magazines don't have a practical sporting purpose or hunting purpose. as one hunter told me, if you have 12 rounds, it means you've already missed the d
